Dr Bell will guide us through all the amazing discoveries that have been made in Dinosaur Provincial Park over the past decade, from the Centrosaurus fossil deposits that were excavated in the early 2000s to stories from the field from this year’s just-completed excavation season.
We’ll learn about Dr Bell’s work in western Canada where he co-leads the Boreal Alberta Dinosaur Project; and discover why he is drawn to Alberta each year on his quest for new dinosaur discoveries. In a place where bears and mountain lions are a very real threat, hunting dinosaurs is not an easy game, but the rewards far outweigh the risk.

The talk is for adults but is suitable for young people aged 10 and up.
